Shortly after the pandemic hit, I began a category on the self help blog geared entirely toward making your home a place that feels like a safe haven – the sort of place you don’t want to leave and one you can’t wait to return to. While this is obviously an extraordinary mindset to have pandemic or not, spending more time at home has reminded us of the importance of making your home your castle.
While there are great design ideas online and more gorgeous decorations and furnishings than any one person could ever accumulate, one problem arises… we are all deliciously different, with different personalities, different likes, loves, and dislikes. What makes me unwind and relax (watching old movies, drinking raspberry tea, purple, my cats..) may not work for the next person.
Colors that make one person feel hyped up and ready to take on the world may make the next person so at peace they fight to stay awake!
That’s why it’s so vital to personalize your own “zensperience” and make your home… well… YOUR home.
I have a great article I want to point you to today that is VERY much in this wheelhouse. It’s all about creating a zen room in your home – one that fosters a sense of well-being and peace.
I have a feeling that once we accomplish one “Zen” room, we won’t want to stop there. Personally, I’m thinking an entire zen house sounds like Heaven on earth. A Heaven on earth with lots of purple, cats, tea, and Casablanca playing on loop in the background.
See Emotional Escape Rooms for Every Personality for more wonderful information and inspiration. Trust me, this is outstanding.
